SPONSORSHIP REQUEST FOR CHILDREN FILM FESTIVAL
Welcome to (KidFlix)__________, the first annual International Children’s Film Festival Dear Sponsors, KidFlix provides a forum for children and their families to celebrate the art of cinema and to showcase the role that films play in children’s artistic and educational lives. We offer a diverse lineup of films from around the world, including animation, documentaries, feature films and student films. The festival is a great place to expose your company to the families of the neighbourhood in a fun, lively mix of film screenings, workshops, and celebrity appearances. Think of your sponsorship of the Film Festival as a wonderful opportunity for your organization to:
· allow children and their families to enjoy a fabulous family event.

Sponsorship packages provide our organization with goods, services and financial support necessary for hosting this brand new event- the first International children’s film festival in Kolkata.
